Unmarried minor females are presumed by law to have the same rights to their unborn or born child as would an adult woman. The minor cannot be forced to place her child for adoption or sign over her parental rights and retains sole custodial rights to her child unless a court rules otherwise. If an underage mother is in need of assistance for herself and her child she should contact the state's department of children and family services. There are also many independent organizations that will offer assistance to any mother and child/children without regardless of age. Birthright, 1-800--550-4900,

If a grandmother takes care of her grandson since birth and the mother of the child takes him without consulting with the grandmother does the grandmother have legal rights to the child?

A child is not property and continued "possession" does not have meaning with regard to rights. Regardless of how long the grandmother has been taking care of the grandson, she has legal rights to the child only if the mother, or the courts, formally granted her custodial rights. If the grant of custodial rights was never made, then the grandmother has no legal right to interfere with the mother resuming custodial care of the child. (Presuming the mother has not lost custodial rights to some other person or institution.)
